If you're looking into getting data-only, the spotty coverage may not be too bad for email. It will be frustrating for web browsing and unusable for voice but email will work in some cases. I'd still recommend choosing the carrier with better coverage in locations that you frequent. For one thing, poor coverage will kill your batteries faster.
